With this summer’s Transformers: Age of Extinction, director Michael Bay aims to reboot his own franchise with an installment that allegedly takes place in a very different world (it doesn’t seem that different, really).  Set three years after the events of Dark of the Moon, the fourth Transformers film finds the inhabitants of Earth united against any and all Transformers, blaming the action figures robots for the destruction in Chicago.  As part of a new viral campaign for the film, these Transformers: Age of Extinction propaganda posters and “Fall of Chicago” video advocate a human-only Earth and urge people to report all alien activity.  It’s a cute campaign, but I’m mainly curious to see just how far Bay has gone in resetting this franchise.

Hit the jump to check out the Transformers: Age of Extinction propaganda posters and video.  The film stars Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, T.J. Miller, Han Geng, and Titus WelliverTransformers: Age of Extinction opens in 3D on June 27th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Transformers: Age of Extinction:

TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION is the fourth film in director Michael Bay’s global blockbuster franchise. The film begins after an epic battle that left a great city torn, but with the world saved. As humanity picks up the pieces, a shadowy group reveals itself in an attempt to control the direction of history… while an ancient, powerful new menace sets Earth in its crosshairs. With help from a new cast of humans, Optimus Prime (voiced by Peter Cullen) and the Autobots rise to meet their most fearsome challenge yet. In an incredible adventure, they are swept up in a war of good and evil, ultimately leading to a climactic battle across the world.
